Elon Musk’s new AI company, xAI Launched its first technology ‘Grok Ai’. Elon Musk has unveiled Grok, an artificial intelligence chatbot taking inspiration from The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.
The Tesla CEO, who warned that AI was “one of the biggest threats to humanity”, said the competitor to ChatGPT would be made available to premium subscribers on his X platform after testing.
Here’s an interaction from Elon Musk with Grok which he posted on his X (formerly Twitter) Handle;

Elon Musk specified that his Grok has current information compared to other GPT Models which do not have current information as to date.
Grok has been built by Elon Musk’s new AI company, xAI. Staff at xAI explained the chatbot’s debt to The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, the cult sci-fi comedy by British author Douglas Adams, in a blog post on Saturday.
“Grok is an AI modeled after The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, so intended to answer almost anything and, far harder, even suggest what questions to ask!
“Grok is designed to answer questions with a bit of wit and has a rebellious streak, so please don’t use it if you hate humor!”
The xAI team said Grok was powered by a large language model – the fundamental technology behind AI chatbots – called Grok-1.
The blog post said Grok-1 had surpassed GPT-3.5, the model used in the freely available version of ChatGPT, on some benchmarks such as solving middle-school maths problems. However, xAI said it lagged behind the most powerful ChatGPT model, GPT-4.
